On Academics: The quality of teachers really depends but I believe that's the same in all public schools. Some teachers really surpass others while others just REALLY suck. If you want to be in a class that somewhat teaches you something and is generally devoid of slacker/annoying kids, take AP classes.

On Educational Outcomes: I feel as though they're definitely trying harder now than in previous years to set up the graduating seniors with plans for the future even if that means going to community college because it makes the high school look good. Personally I didn't feel like they actually cared about how well we were actually prepared to cope but at least in trying to make themselves look like a distinguished high school, they made us all apply for going to ACC which is something I suppose.

On Sports & Fitness: If you're into sports and school spirit and all that jazz, you'll be pleased at RRHS because there's always a huge crowd at football games. C'mon it's Texas.

On Teachers: Unfortunately a lot of the really good teachers have left. Some of the teachers don't seem like they really care and we learn on our own out of the text book. Would like to see more lectures and teachers entering grades on a timely basis.

On Extracurriculars: There are a lot of opportunities to become involved. The biggest problem I see is if you want to be on a sports team there is an overwhelming amount of competition.
